Good morning: Awake in the middle of the night with too much on your mind to sleep? It happens often these days. There’s so much to think about, so many concerns, so many unknowns. Did I remember everything I needed to do today? Am I ready for tomorrow? What if I don’t feel well? What…

Good morning: We are very nearsighted people by nature. Especially when it comes to disappointments and difficulties we assume that no one has ever had it as bad as I do. We use it as an excuse for all kinds of things, such as giving in to temptation, despair, resentment, or anger toward others, sometimes…

Good evening: Coming home from a road trip last week my wife and I stopped at Celery Bog, a nature preserve on the outskirts of West Lafayette, Indiana. We arrived to find that the visitors center was closed due to COVID restrictions. We were checking a trail map when a man came from the building…

Good morning: Did you check your email first thing this morning, Facebook, the newsfeed you subscribe to? What happens thousands of miles away is instantly broadcast everywhere. What the president or Congress or the CDC says becomes common knowledge online within minutes. Our problem is not a lack of information, but the question of whom…

Good morning: In our current atmosphere of protests, riots, shootings, and explosive anger toward anyone who has a different opinion, one thing is conspicuously absent—forgiveness. How often do you hear someone publicly calling for forgiveness for someone who said something hurtful about an individual or group of people? When was the last time you saw…

Good morning: What happens when you see a sign: “Road closed”? Do you follow the detour or drive around the barricade because “No one is going to tell me I can’t use this road”? Tell a little one, “Don’t touch,” and what may he likely do when you turn your back? Take your shoes off,…

Good morning: How does today look? What about next week? What are your expectations for the rest of the year? Will every day be sunshine and 70s, COVID-free, and filled with fun times and interesting experiences? Of course not. We know expectations like that are completely unrealistic. Life in this sinful world is never perfect….

Good morning, Have you ever met a celebrity? I once sat ten feet away from a Brewers pitcher in a Hales Corners barbershop. What an opportunity! The problem was I didn’t know who it was until he was out the door and in the parking lot. He looked like any other typical young man in…

Good morning: When was the last time you got together with others, besides your family? Has it been awhile? One of the unfortunate consequences of the current pandemic is that gatherings have been discouraged. Ordinarily, you might have spent an evening this week enjoying a meal with friends. Friday you may have taken in a…

Good morning: Are you a risk taker? Do you live life on the edge? Most of us would probably answer, “No way!” We like to steer a safe middle course. We’re not going to be too daring in our style of clothing or too aggressive in how we invest our IRA. We don’t crave to…
